Strawweight contender Nina Ansaroff has announced her intention to return to fighting just three months after giving birth to the daughter she shares with UFC dual weight champion Amanda Nunes.

On September 25, Nunes took to social media to announce the birth of Raegan Ann Nunes and even posted a photo of the new-born alongside the very happy couple.

Nunes and Ansaroff had been planning a baby for a long time. Speaking on ESPN’s Be Honest with Cari Champion back in 2017, Ansaroff revealed she would carry the child before returning to competition, she said. “I can pause. Get a baby and then come back. A lot of girls in the UFC already have a baby. There’s a bunch of girls that have babies and go back”.
